March 1, 2012

Today, the British Columbia Teacher Federation advised that a strike will occur starting Monday, March 5, 2012.  This means that teachers will not be reporting for duty at our schools.  Based on the rules established by the BC Labour Relations Board this withdrawal of services is expected to run for 3 days next week, allowing school to resume Thursday, March 8, 2012.

During a strike schools will remain open but because teachers will not be in schools, we will be unable to provide students with instruction or normal/safe levels of supervision.

Therefore, in the event of a teacher strike:

Buses will not be running,

Children should be kept at home, and

Parents should plan for alternate care as needed.

It is the sincere hope of the Board of Education that this strike will be concluded quickly, and that normal school operations will resume as quickly as possible. In the meantime, we will do our utmost to keep you informed in a timely manner.

During the strike, further information will be provided through the local radio stations, the newspapers and the School District website. You will also be able to follow news of the strike on Twitter and Facebook; links will be available on our main web page  HYPERLINK “http://www.sd91.bc.ca” www.sd91.bc.ca.  We would also encourage you to listen to the radio and watch for further updates in the media.

Sincerely yours,

Charlene Seguin, Superintendent of Schools
